I was summoned to the house in progress yesterday to discuss fireplace placement. Unfortunately it's gonna have to be wedged in the corner rather than the traditional middle of the wall positioning, and I got all fretful about symmetry and layout, but the boy hasn't steered us wrong yet.
He was having to tackle much bigger issues, such as the insulation that had molded. He had to tear out all of the sheetrock from the wall and ceiling, spray the insulation with bleach and wait for the stuff to dry before putting it all back together again.
And hey! We have windows! So the house it starting to look less inhabited by hobbits than by actual people!
Next week, the house painters arrive to start the extreme makeover...
